A house without books is like a room without windows. No man has a right to bring up children without surrounding them with books…. Children learn to read being in the presence of books – Horace MANN (1796-1859)

  • To read a book for the first time is to make an acquaintance with a new friend; to read it for a second time is to meet an old one – Anonymous, Chinese saying
  • There’s nothing to match curling up with a good book when there’s a repair job to be done around the house – Joe RYAN
